I also tried the steroid effect...It was hard to sleep,and I felt absolutely no relief myself.7 weeks on crutches now.Swelling has not gone down at all,the pain is becoming unbearable.The podiatrist has referred me to a vascular specialist,of which money comes to mind.My leg has been bothering me, it seems to be a circulation matter also.I have switched from ice to heat.I have to admit,it feels much better!I went to a regular doctor for symptoms of phlebitis.I guess that can come on due to lack of activity as a result of being laid up.(family history of it).I am on Naproxen still and am taking propoxyphene every six hours regardless.The Doctor took xrays and did bloodwork.I am ready to lock myself in a little room soon!I have been trying to put more weight down,but the shoes I have stink and I have certaintly not felt like even going to shop for a new pair.I guess I`ll sit this summer out and try to pawn my children off for a little summer fun...
